JTV Digital Music Distribution

Anyone out there who's used JTV Digital Music Distribution?

They responded to my earlier post, DistroKid.com Part 2, and said, "Please test our service ... if you're looking for something a bit more "serious" :-)"

Their advertised flat rates are iTunes single - 69 cents; all stores single - $3.05; all stores album (12 tracks) - $36.70; all stores EP (5 tracks) - $15.25. On top of that, they get 10% of the royalty payments.

The stores as of this posting are 7 digital, Amazon, boinc, Deezer, digital-tunes, Google play, gracenote, Grooveshark, iTunes, juno download, movistar, Nokia ovi, rdio, Rhapsody, Spotify and Shazam.

My initial reaction is that they are in a totally different league from DistroKid in their pricing. With JTV Digital, my 21 track "music from Major Stryker" album would have cost $73.40 to distribute as two albums (only 12 tracks allowed per album), plus 10% of any royalties earned. 

JTV Digital has twelve more stores over DistroKid's four. This would definitely have an impact on those who want to be in more stores.

  1. Hello,

    JTV Digital here.

    Thanks for mentioning us.

    Yes we are more expensive than DistroKid, but not that much :-)

    See here:
    Delivering 21 tracks to the same 4 stores DistroKid supports would have cost you 26.7 USD (at today's rate).
    One-off fee, no recurring payment.

    Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions.

    Kind regards,
